Be Aware of Your Roof’s Condition
Why ignore your roof until it starts leaking? Extend its lifespan and avoid costly roof repairs by taking a proactive approach to roof maintenance. Having an experienced roofer perform periodic in-depth checkups is a step in the right direction. You should also keep an eye on the overall condition of the roof, noting any concerning issues that are likely to lead to leaks. Make regular visual scans from the ground to spot issues when they first occur. Use binoculars if needed, and look for curled or broken asphalt or wood shingles, damaged or misaligned slate tiles, leaky or sagging gutters, areas that look darker than the rest of the roof, or deteriorated flashing.
